(Scroll down for video) A goat ran around wild at a hospital parking lot frightening many hospital workers and visitors, according to video uploaded to the internet.

A security guard helped police tie a goat running wild in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, overnight.

The goat was first seen running on Fulton Avenue, just before 1:00 am. Passersby who called police, said that the goat appeared disoriented and ran through the streets, knocking on the doors of the buildings.

The goat was finally cornered in a parking lot on Herkimer Street, across from Interfaith Medical Center.
A hospital security guard called Seydou, originally from West Africa, took a rope and tried to bind the goat.
The goat was behind several cars, hiding from the police and thwarting the attempts of the guard.

The security guard finally took the goat by the horns and held it while police tied the animal.
Authorities put the goat in the backseat of their patrol car and taken to Animal Care and Control.
The goat had a label on it, indicating that it apparently escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse.

Besides making a fun night shift, the lucky break of the goat has paid off. Instead of returning to the slaughterhouse, it will be sent to a farm sanctuary in upstate New York.
